Can: Poured a cloudy bright yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of juicy hops with dry floral hops notes with some grapefruit notes and some light resinous notes. Taste is a great mix of juicy hops notes with dry floral undertones with some grapefruit notes. Body is full with good carbonation. Another nice NEIPA but finish is maybe a tad dryer then I was expecting.

For me, this was IPA nirvana. I have not yet had the chance to try Tree House or Toppling Goliath IPAs, but I've had many of the incredibly delicious Vermont IPAs and this ranks at or near the top. Please keep making this beer!

On tap at the brewery. They poured this into a tall tulip. The appearance was a glossy yellow color with a thin white head. Mild lacing after head dissipation. The smell started off with a big sweet tropical fruits to a nice resinous underscore of juicy sweet to bitter citrus rind. The flavor brings about all of the previously mentioned flavors to boot. Exceptional fresh bittersweet aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sipping quality about it. Carbonation seems good for the style and for me. Overall, damn nice DIPA that I would love to have again.

First sip was just meh, but as this opens up it.is truely amazing. There is a more floral note than you see in many NEIPA and an acidy that enhances the citrus hop notes. Really brilliant.combination.

Fresh can poured into a wheat beer glass. Very white but minimal head. Very hazing orange, yellow. Looks like grapefruit juice. Nice fruity aroma and taste. Juice bomb

Good mix of citrus fruit and a very interesting color. That being said, I didn’t love this beer. The flavor for some reason tasted a bit off to me - or just something I didn’t love.

Appearance: pours a cloudy light orange color with a 1/2" head.

Smell: some orange and tropical fruit comes through to the nose.

Taste: caramel, biscuit, orange, mango, pineapple, and a floral bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp at the finish.

Overall: a smooth and easy to drink DIPA. Well balanced and refreshing.
